Following the critically-acclaimed first season of the Netflix original series DreamWorks Voltron: Legendary Defender, executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos, co-executive producer Lauren Montgomery and writer Tim Hedrick thrilled fans with confirmation of a second season arriving later this year during their San Diego Comic-Con panel Thursday, July 21.

Joined by surprise guest Steven Yeun, who voices Keith the pilot of the red lion, panel attendees were treated to behind-the-scenes stories, the filmmakers' favorite scenes from season 1 (including that big Pidge reveal), and a sneak peek of what promises to be an epic second season. Picking up in the moments following the season one finale cliffhanger, viewers will follow Team Voltron in the wake of Haggar's disruption of their wormhole as they are scattered across the universe. Season 2 of DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender will premiere exclusively on Netflix in late 2016.

The Netflix original series DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender reimagines one of the most popular fan-favorite shows of all time in this all-new comedic action-packed show from executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos (The Legend of Korra, Avatar: The Last Airbender) and co-executive producer Lauren Montgomery (The Legend of Korra).
